#DiverseDecember

2 December 2015

This month we see a celebration of books by BAME authors with #DiverseDecember (@DiverseDecember) on Twitter.                                                                                                                                                                                                    This campaign follows Spread The Word’s damning report 'Writing the Future: Black and Asian Authors and Publishers in the UK Market Place', which found back in April that “an old mono-culture still prevails” in British Publishing and the news that last week’s list of titles announced for 2016 World Book Night didn’t include a single BAME writer.
